“No idea is too crazy, no goal is unreachable, and no effort is too imperfect. Define yourself by the scale of your dreams, and by the scope of your actions!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
‘’ 7 years ago today, @NASA had me in for a talk to a senior leadership meeting – the first of 2 times! In the room were astronauts, mission controllers, program directors. At the time, the agency was faced with uncertainty in its future, with budget cutbacks, cancellations, and more.
My talk re-examined the future and challenged them to think about what happened in previous times of uncertainty. The core and soul of my talk was on the theme “Transformational Leadership”
Did it work? The feedback said so: ““Great presentation, great perspective, EXCELLENT on all accounts.” “Outstanding. Very thought provoking which I believe was the intent” “I resonated with this speaker; it’s very hard, NASA needs more of this kind of attitude to more readily accept changes to explore/exploit opportunities” – NASASpace Centre
